What's Up Warthogs! is a Canadian sitcom that aired on Family. It follows two teen rivals – Victoria and Eric – who with the help of best friend, Charlie, and crazed genius, Laney, come together and make the morning announcements into a show. The show premiered on March 11, 2011 on Family, and it was the first series shown on the launch of Disney XD Canada on June 1, 2011.

Plot[edit]

Eric Ortiz (Tiago Abreu) becomes the president of West Hill High's A/V Club. He decides to turn the boring weekly announcements into the most exciting, hilarious news show in West Hill history, hoping to become more popular while doing it. But things don't work out exactly as he'd hoped. His lifelong rival, Victoria Jagger, becomes his co-host at Mr. Denovi, and the principal's request. The managing editor of the school newspaper, Teddy Chadwick IV, will do whatever he can to sabotage the announcements and keep his school paper in his classmates' hands. Lucky for Eric, his best friend Charlee has got his back. They bring in brainy Laney, a 12-year-old genius, as the producer to make the show run smoothly behind the scenes. To Eric's surprise, even Victoria helps "What's Up, Warthogs!" become a West Hill High success story. Together, the "What's Up Warthogs!" crew shares adventure, laughs, and the unlikeliest of friendships.[1]
